A sneak peek inside Takashi Murakami’s “HEADS⟷HEADS” exhibit at Galerie Perrotin NYC
Galerie Perrotin on Orchard Street is showcasing three fabulous floors of never-before-seen paintings by the pioneer of ‘superflat.’ Waaaa!
Takashi Murakami 村上隆 just launched a spine-tingling artistic showcase of psychotropic, anime-esque jams called ‘HEADS⟷HEADS.’ The awe-inspiring exhibit is filled with exotic paintings inspired by Francis Bacon — the amazing painter who depicted ‘buggery, sadism, dread, and death-vomit.’ One of the coolest compositions is a sprawling 33-foot-long painting (above) to commemorate one of the most influential Japanese paint-slingers of the Edo period, Soga Shohaku, the master blaster of freaky brush style art. Accompanying the paintings is an awesome space dedicated to demonstrating Murakami’s creative process, including his concept scribbles, illustrations, and ad hoc arrangements. Random works from artists KAWS, JR, Daniel Arsham, and Joshua Vides are on display as well. This venue is seriously fucking cool. Go to Galerie Perrotin on Orchard Street asap.
‘HEADS⟷HEADS’ is currently open until June 17.
